- ERO Enterprise Releases Facility Ratings Best Practices Report
Facility ratings play a significant role in the reliable planning and operation of the bulk power system and therefore demand effective management to reduce associated risks and impacts. The subject report is intended to aid stakeholders in strengthening the accuracy and sustainability of their facility ratings programs, resulting in the lessening of facility ratings challenges and ensuring a more reliable and secure bulk power system. The best practices in this report are not directives to industry to undertake any actions. Rather, they are best practices for mitigating risks in the area of facility ratings and for addressing the themes identified in this report.
- FERC 2022-2023 Winter Assessment Report – Keeping the Focus on Demand, Reliability, and Prices
U.S. electricity markets are projected to have adequate amounts of generating capacity to maintain reliable operations this winter, though grid operators in certain regions may face challenges during periods of extreme weather, according to the FERC staff Winter Energy Market and Reliability Assessment. This year’s report, presented to the Commission at its October meeting, notes the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecasts above average temperatures this winter for most of the U.S., except for the Pacific Northwest and West-North Central region of the country. Rising demand for natural gas, mostly for gas exports, and lower than average natural gas storage inventories are driving expectations that natural gas prices for the coming winter will be higher than last year. Prices are expected to be particularly high in New England, which is dependent, in part, on LNG imports.
